It is altogether more sustainable to refurbish large amounts of the UK's building stock rather than to demolish it and construct new buildings. From homes to offices to schools, so many existing structures are in need of radical transformation to reduce carbon emissions and ensure 21st century end-user requirements are met.
The refurbishment market offers many opportunities and challenges for the architectural community. Architects need to understand how to offer design solutions for improving the performance of the building envelope, incorporating energy saving technologies and generating renewable energy where appropriate, whilst creating a building which is attractive and ultimately fit-for-purpose.
